Event description

Description


Runs weekly on Tuesdays 7:00 to 8.30pm starting on September 19th

As modern life becomes more hectic, our children can sometimes become overwhelmed by the pace of things. Increased pressures at school, trying to balance after-school activities and the challenges of growing-up in our super-connected multi-media world can leave them feeling drained and plain ‘stressed out’.
This 8-week mindfulness course is designed to help anxious teens take a break and just BREATHE EASY! It is also designed to help equip them with techniques they can use as they transition back into school.

Through activities and group discussion, children aged 13-16 will learn the ancient art of mindfulness, a technique that science has proven to reduce stress, improve focus and attention and increase general happiness. During the course, children will learn how to:
  • Pay attention to their body and recognize the signals that they are becoming stressed out
  • Understand what happens in their brains and body when they become stressed or anxious
  • Use a variety of techniques to calm their body and mind
  • Be more forgiving of and caring towards themselves
  • Feel emotionally stronger and more confident
  • Incorporate these tools as part of their daily life
As a support, a optional one-hour session will also be available to parents, in advance, to explain the principles of mindfulness and cues that they can use to help their child practise these techniques at home. Parents are also welcome to join their teens in the class to observe the techniques being taught.
